  1. Clearing a shed for a widow. Came across a new tin of ROCOL ASP ANTI-SCUFFING PASTE. I work on mowers and British motorcycles. Would I ever need or use this product, not got a clue on this one.
  2. Thought floats were in Amal's and the like ? Thanks.
  3. Hope you all had a nice Christmas considering. Well I dug the old Still BG86C out of the shed. Was running about a year ago and doing it's job. I have put fresh 2 stroke in it and adjusted the plug, cleaned the filter. The primer bulb seems OK. Tried to start it and it is throwing petrol out of the exhaust at a rate of knots. The compression seems OK ? Any ideas please. Thank you.
  4. I can take the burner off of the tank no problem. The wick is dry as a bone obviously, it's just shifting it via the up and down mechanism without causing any more damage. I tried to turn the wheel with pliers, silly me ? Sorry can't do pictures.
  5. Just purchased a new old stock heater, probably about 40 years old, never been fired. It is the sort with the round wick. The mechanism that turns the wick up and down is wrung ( I think ). The wick is far too high, can I have some tips on how to manipulate the wick back down. No fuel has been put in the appliance yet. I appreciate that this is not the right forum, but there is a wealth of information amongst the members. Thank you.
  6. It is one of those newish Macallister mowers, cleaned carb out. Was ok before ? Only about 18 months old.
  7. Not very old at all this mower, yesterday cut a large lawn for someone ( first cut ) . After a couple of quick tea breaks it was an absolute pig to start. The plug was very sooty when I got home and the air filter is spotless, Champion plug. Was using premium petrol as it was all that I had. Any tips please.
  8. Whilst pulling down an old outbuilding at work I found an old hammer in a chest of drawers. Slight surface rust but could clearly read 'Stahwille 10805 Germany'. It has a wooden shaft marked 'Hickory'. Did some research and these are currently still on sale known as a pecking hammer. I sanded it all down and gave the head a coat of Japlac. I polished the head surface and single claw. Hey presto a new hammer that gave me an hours enjoyment in the cave. These are retailing at $104.60 on line. Thought I would share this little story before you discard an old hammer. I will hang mine with the others I don't use that often.
  9. Did exactly what I said above, worked a treat. Will be looking for another one with a broken pulley on ebay £££'s.
  10. Could do, can get pallets FOC from my garden Centre. Could cover them in boarding ( ply ).
  11. I am only posting this on here as I know there are so many farmers on here, please help this once. My good lady friend has 8 Quessant sheep. She bought two covered plastic Pig Pens for them to sleep in. They were located in what is now a muddy area. The Pens have been raised up but the ground is now fine hardcore, not nice to sleep on. She is thinking about spreading wood bark on the floor but worried about it getting in their coats. Can anyone advise on a good product to spread on the ground. Thank you in anticipation.
  12. Thanks lads looking forward to lifting it out of the car into the garage. Regards.
  13. Just been given an immaculate old Pillar Drill. Took two of us to put it in the car, so heavy. Never heard of this make before. Are they a quality machine, Model TB 1500 W. Apparently works fine, problem is I can't get it out of the car; too heavy. Thanks.
  14. Found a pulley for another make on ebay, exactly the same dimensions apart from the hole for the roll pin is 2mm difference, simple bit of drilling and a new roll pin should do the job, just hope my belt is the right profile for the pulley. Apart from that a well made mower. Thanks lads.
